Nutella - heaven on an apple

OK - I admit it, I had never eaten Nutella until today, not in my entire life. Today a friend served me a snack of sliced apples with Nutella to dip into.

YUM!

I'm hooked and now have a brand new jar on my counter and a desire to experiment. What other great ways are there to use this chocolaty goodness?

Oh my goodness Janet, now you are speaking my language. Let me go find our big long thread about its uses and I'll give you the link.

I've also got a Nutella cake recipe and I'll post that too.

First of all though, make peanut butter cookies with nutella instead of PB.

Janet,
next time you grill, try it on any fruit you like, my favorite is either pineapple or peaches.

You asked for it Janet...we LOVE Nutella around here.

Nutella Cake - this is awesome too.
Nutella Chat

OK, I could go on, but you get the drift. The last one was a fun thread. Oh how we love Nutella. Honestly, could it get much better? Chocolate spread that is actually GOOD for you? WOOHOO!!

Thanks for the links - I see that I should have gotten a larger jar :)

It's even great on plain soft white bread! Thank goodness it is too expensive to eat as often as I would like! If you don't have anything to spread it on or to dip into it, it is also good on a spoon!

Anyone who tries to convince you this stuff is healthy is getting kickbacks.





1 jar = 2,000 calories.

You might as well just spread it directly onto your thighs.

Healthy? Nah - it tastes to good :)

I suspect if spread it directly on my thighs, it might draw flies or maybe husband ... hmm...

I spread a thin layer on a toasted whole wheat English muffin half and top with banana slices.
